Press Clippings about Opening of CEPC Training Centre at Jayapur Village

Welcome to Carpet Export Promotion Council
Founded in 1982, the CEPC was established by the Ministry of Textiles of the government of India to promote the export of hand-knotted rugs and all other types and styles of floor coverings from India.
The CEPC’s membership is comprised of senior trade representatives and government officials, who provide invaluable service and expertise to the organization. The CEPC’s primary responsibility is to advise the Indian government on export promotion measures and help the exporter community bring their problems and needs to the attention of the government. The organization also provides assistance to Indian exporters by identifying key markets and trends,
Chairman's Message
“Wishing a Very Happy, peaceful & healthy New Year”. The year 2014 was one of the most challenging & very successful years for Carpet Export Promotion Council (CEPC) which witnessed heavy turnout of overseas buyers, resulting in tremendous business in both the flagship Expositions of India Carpet Expos during the year 2014.
I complement all my Fellow Exporters for showing good performance amidst dwindling and changing economic scenario. Handmade Carpet exports have again registered consecutive impressive growth of more than 20% in the last year.
In 2014, we had full support of the Government and export incentive measures announced included expanding interest subvention as well as increasing the corpus on the Market Access Initiative (MAI), Market Development Assistance (MDA).
